Do you have any evidence to back up your assertion that he deserted, or was booted ..? Or are you offering conjecture..?He signed up in a Tennessee state regiment. When the regiment was drafted into confederate service, Farley either quit or was turned away.
By the time the gap in the 25th TN Inf disappears, his enlistment would've been up. Isn't that a plausible explanation why we don't see him in muster rolls later in the war..?
Lots of regiments have gaps, sometimes long gaps, in their records.
